he's at 60.6. his margin over john mccain was 9.9 million. this us date was 2.9. he had a 7.2% margin over john mccain and a 2.1% margin over mitt romney. he becomes the first president getting a smaller share of the vote than he got in his first term. jim me seasonna gave a series of interviews where they said we are not going to be able to get where we need to get vick fly by talking about what you have done and painting a pretty picture of what you achieved. we have to go after romney's wealth, business experience and character with early advertising to drive up his negatives. this is a grand bet it's a dangerous strategy. because fit doesn't work out we won't have enough time or money to try something else. the president said go do it. they proceeded to slam romney in the summer. and what we have is a disappearing electric rats. we'll have 10 million people vote in 2012 than 2010. this is the first election in four previous elections where the share of the voting age population will decline, not increase. megyn: there has been soil searching in the republican party to diagnose the
in the republican party, known. i'm not suggesting that john mccain was a racist but john mccain had no association of black people whatsoever. the press like mitt romney this year. i know they always try out some black people that facility i know. and his age career he had with his ascent toward all the things in terms of his history and john mccain's family comes from mississippi by john mccain had no association with black people whatsoever. so when he ran for the presidency in 2008, black people were not even on a radar. at the present obama got elected, could there isn't a not necessarily true belief by republicans that the african- american vote was no longer -- was basically off-limits. i believe the rise of publicly- expressed racist sentiments and the attitudes that go with them came from the fact that a lot of republicans decided black people are off limits. so we don't have to appeal to black people. karl rove into a dozen forethought," i know black people and i know there are lettuce. i know they don't like the marriage. let's go to ohio and go to churches and african-american leaders a
you go from getting 44% of the hispanic vote to 31% at john mccain in got to 27% that mitt romney got, that is a bad situation for republicans. when you have the group of growing faster than any other group as part of the electorate and you are shrinking in your share of the vote, that is a big problem. this is one republicans are going to have to deal with. the other groups -- obama did not do well among the white women. the number is a little distorted because so many are hispanic women. an african-american woman that may be voting for the democrats for other reasons. host: exit polls show that female voters went 55% to 45%. guest: we have a gender gap a denture every election except for 2010. and republicans came out even. in presidential elections they have not done well. 11 points is a lot. we will have to think about doing better. i think you do better when you have better candidates. host: talk about the third part of the editorial, the young voters. guest: when they get older, they become more conservative. i do not mean to be dismissive about that. one of the surprises about
of 1988, john mccain would have defeated barack obama. the facts are there. if people turn out, if minority voters turnout, republicans have a disadvantage to start with. latino vote, it was just huge. you look at the states, look at florida, colorado, you look at nevada, you could even argue iowa, but state after state, the latino vote, if you take it out, the democrats would have lost, even in florida, it was 61-39 including the cubans. cuban-americans are not no longer the majority in florida among latinos, but the younger generations of cuban-americans vote like puerto rican or dominican voters, not the anti-castro parents and grandparents. asian-americans, that was the biggest shift. 75-25 for obama. i remember covering the 2000 race. gore and bush. i think bush won the asian-american vote before september 11th, asian-american was a swing vote leaning republican. yesterday, it was 3-to-1 democratic. urban-rural, it's -- mirror images. it's roughly 60-40, and demographically, which areas are growing, the urban areas or rural america? you wouldn't want to bet on rural americ
, and people believed him. did it work? hum, i don't think so. >> yeah how did that work? >> i don't think john mccain got elected, did he? >> no, i don't remember him winning. >> and i don't remember this guy -- mitt romney getting elected either. so then karl rove comes up with this american cross roads idea. of course the supreme court gave him a big give in citizens united, so they could raise this millions and millions and millions of dollars, and support all right-wing candidates and throw them into senate races, house races and the presidential race. and then karl rove goes on and some of the stuff he said -- he was so wrong. it's unbelievable. the "washington post" yesterday had a -- a whole series of quotes about how wrong they were -- and he is a commentator on fox news which is a huge conflict. he is out there raising money defeat obama, and then he has out there supposedly a political pundit and then he writes for the wall street journal. he wrote in the final days of this presidential race, the polls favor mitt romney. no they don't. no they didn't. he was again
. leave you with an important fact that was stunning to me. mitt romney got fewer votes than john mccain. when i saw that and looked at the numbers last night, i could not believe it. that tells you, i think, that he had not only problems expanding his reach to key demographics but even within his own party. that is not a candidate that can win. >> can i jump in with chris real quick. not only did mitt romney have less votes than john mccain, barack obama had way less votes than barack obama had, and that's because these campaign commercials turned off the american people. they went on and on and on. they defined both candidates badly, and they did not have a positive discussion about the future. and both the american people, i think, were sick and tired of all politicians by the end of this campaign. >> we'll see if anybody thinks they should do things differently now. gentlemen, it's great to see you again. also making news this morning, the director of new york's office of emergency management has been fired for misusing emergency workers during hurricane sandy. governor andrew cuomo
to fight each other. john mccain echoed this with his famous observation how the world was tied together, and englishmen could order from his doorstep products from faraway lands and have them delivered to him. it is an early version of thomas friedman's theory which claims advanced countries that use computers won't go to war with each other. are, the starbucks theory. any two countries that have starbucks won't fight. unless they have triple espressoss. another observer-block, in a much different way, posited war would be so bloody and weaponry so deadly that no one would dare risk a conflict. all of these views assume european leaders can be rational, a stretch even in the present day. this of course vanished in august of 1914, a war sparked by one of the most unlikely of accidents when archduke franz ferdinand on his way back from a speech in sarajevo turned away from his planned route to visit a guard injured in an earlier, failed assassination attempt. of course he drove to his death, an incident that would plunge the world into a conflagration. i won't they dow they -- built into
to national security, like senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham. however, will not necessarily heard about point the president say -- no way is this going to happen. was for indication that it is one area where, although there's a lot of gridlock here, both parties to agree on this one point, that this should not happen. host: next caller, bob on our line for republicans, new jersey. caller: i have two comments. one is, in this a good idea to go over the fiscal cliff. and i am wondering if the tax cuts expire, does that mean that the 47% better not paying taxes will start paying taxes? if that is the case, let us go for it. it is time people get into the game, even if it is $5 a year. something. i will take your comments off air. host: my question was going to become a what does it mean for him? that goes to the question of how much could this mean not just for everyone, but how much it means on a personal level. we will ask other callers there. what to do think about his proposal that we drive off the cliff? caller: i think for a while it seems like that now have been more of a poss
the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperformed. >> i'm guessing it is bigger in 2012 than in 2008. >> at the performance is a little bit overstated. dig into the data. it is not quite impressive as the polls might have suggested. i had to brag a little bit. i was having a fierce twitter debate over the nature of ohio. nate's model has predicted in this election and had a 49.6% chance to beat ohio in the electoral vote. the tipping state was colorado. where did romney's 47% remarks get him? 47% of the vote. >> we talk about how non-whites are growing, particularly among latinos. unions are shrinking. for the 6% of voters were from the union households. this ticket was only 18 percent. i do think that you are right. it will be more about the sun belt than the rest. >> non college white union members. this is pretty striking. >> let's have another question. in the front. >> you spoke about the long-term trends of declining voter turnout and increased polarization and the emotionalism of v
. it went from two to 3%, went up dramatically. john mccain got 35 percent. mitt romney, 27. that is very troubling for republicans. lou: let's talk about the democrat, happier story. the idea that this president performed better, did not do quite as well. he was down from 2008 with young people, but still enough to win. what are your thoughts about the way it went down? >> i was so surprised about the rapidity with which the race was called. but i voted on friday. it took me about two and a half hours to vote, which was shocking. i had no idea about that so many people were going to be in the system trying to vote. early voting was an indication to me the something else was going on. if i talk to these people, i heard how they were just really angry. the south side of chicago. primarily african-american, at least in that section, and they personalize a lot of the attacks lou: matt. >> not just angry. hurt. lou: i have to go to break. >> legitimacy as an american was questioned. lou:, on. we're coming back in just a minute. we will find out what's going on were coming right back. those su
mccain and health care summit. >> let me just make this pont, john. because we're not campaigning anymore. the election is over. >> the president has made clear mccain and his republican colleagues have simply moved too far to the right to work out any deals. the republican view is the president's idea of bipaisanship is to force them to accept sharp tax increases. there are also skeptical mr. obama is willing to step up with real speding cuts. >> i was interested in his remarks was night about saying that the best is yet to come. well, we would have liked to have seen some of that in the first four years. but maybe he really is serious this time. >> another major stumbling block may be the investigation over the terror attack in benghazi. mccain and republican lindsay gramm have been pressing for answers and accused the white house's stonewalling. fox has learned the house intelligence committee will hold a closed hearing of benghi. the demonstration pledging cooperation and sending of witnesses like cia director david patraeus. meanwhile, the fiscal cliff check -- vice-ppesident biden t
and was endorsed in the race by republicans like john mccain. so that would be an easy confirmation process. john kerry you would have to replace him and maybe scott brown runs for his seat but i think john kerry or berman would be solid picks. >>shepard: on the federal reserve we hear about lawrence summers. >>guest: former clinton secretary was interested in it before better -- bernanke was tapped. and the vice chair of the central bank now, she would be the first woman to head the bank so she is probably the favorite in this game we all have to play. >>shepard: with the focus on women in the elections that would make sense on a bunch of different fronts. and the defense department with panetta saying that's it. >>guest: well, he will stay for a little bit and deal with this sequestration problem, until it is solved and you have to look at panetta's deputy and you have to look at the highest ranking member at the defense department who would be the first female defense secretary. >>shepard: at treasury, geithner has been a controversial figure. what is the thinking on that? >>guest: you have ja
% of those who identified as independents to john mccain's 40%. this was a group were focused on. the candidates were trying to reach those independents. you're saying not all the independents are truly independent? guest: they mean a lot of things. some people mean, i really go back and forth, sometimes i vote democratic, republican. that is one group. other people meehan i consistently vote for one party or the other, but i do not think of myself as a member of that party. you really have to distinguish between help people identify themselves, and how people actually vote, which is not the same thing. host: moses is from new york and the democratic line. caller: i want to comment on the latino vote. i know you had a guest before. how latinos perceive romney as being an interventionist .andidate invading countries, like the dominican republic and panama latinos do not consider socialism as evil. if you hear comments from right wing in radio hosts and fox news, socialism is considered evil. in america, with fidel castro, it is very popular -- host: were you expecting the high tur
that kind of softness. who really in this country is pushing for extending it? lindsey graham, john mccain and the departing joe lieberman. i don't know of any other voices in the national political scene who are saying we can't leave. we have to do as long as it takes and stay there forever. there's no public support for it. >> because of this scandal, i just -- i mean, one of the things that you hear from veterans groups, that people outside the military i don't think seem all that comfortable talking about is the personal toll of these long deployments over multiple years on people's personal lives. young veterans bemoan the rate of divorce among veterans. how difficult it is to sustain a family and relationships. i don't know why we think it's easier for top commanders than your average infantry man trying to hold his family together. is this potentially -- we tend to defer to the military's own judgment on these things. we ask the commanders on the ground for their own opinion, but is this not another occasion for civilians to say, this is done in our name. the military isn't fighting
to show you the changes and to show you how while mitt romney did better than john mccain in the state of florida overall, he it did worse in these -- in the i-4 corridor and in particular in three counties that i'm going to point out here carefully. i'm going to start with hillsborough, if you will. it's the largest -- sorry about that. look at this. just one day later and we're masking through everything here. you would think that all would be well with our app. let me get you back here to florida, the presidential race rather than the senate race. i missed the touch screen. the touch screen was always so much easier to do. so let's get right to hillsborough and we'll show you the raw returns in 2008. the president 53% to 46%. look at the raw vote total here. 286,000 votes n. 2008 he won hillsborough county but he had 272,000 votes, also the same 53% to 46%. but the president did increase his margin by 1,000 votes overall in his lead there. look at the swing from 2004, if you will, in hillsborough when hillsborough was a 53%/46% county for the president. when we move to orange county
is another one. the new senator from arizona worked on this issue in the past. then there is john mccain. everything has changed since the election. it was politically not viable and now it has become politically viable. host: this comment by grover norquist from a cbs news story. host: this from nbc news, i apologize. from nebraska.sc caller: thank you for taking my call. latinos when for obama primarily for the immigration issue. you do not think that is narrow minded or the might be other issues that latinos are focusing in. if you would want to discuss those. guest: that is an excellent question. polling shows that what voters care for our jobs and the economy. immigration is either number two or number 3 on their list of things that they care about. it is much higher in places like arizona. it is the number two issue among hispanics. my sense has been that i do not think hispanics always want to be associated with immigration. it is difficult to separate the immigration conversation from them because it is so integral to their lives. 60% of hispanic voters know somebody personally t
, but we still can go back and see when president bush was pushing very hard, when john mccain was pushing hard, ted kennedy was taking a lead and immigration reform was defeated by 15 votes in the senate. i mean, there's no guarantee it will happen, but, you know, the discussion about future elections and growing from latino vote, etc., etc., then maybe exaggerated two years ago -- two years ago we were all lamenting, the democrats were lamenting about the tea party coming forward and the republicans were cheering and looked like the country was going in the the direction. gay marriage was been defeated election after -- so i would also take these trends as written in concrete, the all-i would not take these trends as written in concrete, but they still look favorable. i love the quote,-i cannot remember his name -- on a talk show, it was a great week to be latino. on the rest of latin america, i think what michael said is right. i also think immigration means more for mexico and central america and the caribbean that it does for the other countries. it is important, but it has less -- by
to the poll. mitt romney got fewer than john mccain and still came within two points. the technology included the so-called system some of you have maybe read about in the last couple of days which was the republican get-out-the-vote technology to ensure people are getting to the polls. i'm told on election day it had so many hits around the country as it should have from people saying this person voted and this person didn't. but if that was under attack it closed down. so for those of you hear from again that technology field to enter some politics, we republicans want to talk to you. [laughter] we need some help. the democratic system was quite effective at micro targeting and i've heard lots of anecdotes and one this morning that you will love that somebody gets a call that's a democrat from law school and was we see that you voted and disinformation is publicly available. was it you that voted 2:00 on election day but your sister hasn't. can you call her. that's the level at that point. that led to a turnout effort that in the end makes the difference. the increase in turnout among the b
worked on this issue in the past. then there is john mccain. everything has changed since the election. it was politically not viable and now it has become politically viable. host: this comment by grover norquist from a cbs news story. host: this from nbc news, i apologize. bam >> former u.s. senator evan bayh discusses about the fiscal cliff. then, the global reaction to president obama's reelection. does your e-mail, phone calls, and tweets, "washington journal wife, tuesday. -- live, tuesday. >> congress is back to mar with the ussr representatives. -- tomorrow with the us house of representatives. also at 2:00, and c-span2, live coverage of the senate as members resumed consideration of the sportsman's bill. congressional leaders go to the white house on friday to meet with president obama about kissell issues. >> i enjoy watching booked tv and the rebroadcasts of various television news programs. coverage of the fence about all of the sound bites and the editing ec on other programs. it gives me an opportunity to consume the news and information and make up my own mind about what
over john mccain in 2008. so they wanted to lay out a strategy, get all the people to the polls. and so with the deepest is they invested very early on, a lot of money in state offices. the republicans scoffed at that at the very beginning, saying it was a waste of money and just wait until the end. and that is one of the big reasons the president was able to win. talk to multiple people who went and did fieldwork in ohio on the ground operating as volunteers who work in washington and work out for the final weeks. they said they were able, because they didn't have to drive so far between the fatalities to the offices to get, whether that was registration forms or getting people their checklist or whatever technology they were using, that made him a difference because they could talk to more people. these are hundreds of thousands of door knobs and phone calls they were able to do. so that's a big thing. then when you look at the exit polls, there's a couple things beyond the changing face of the nation, a changing attitude of the nation. when you think about what happened on election n
, and jim web served with honor in vietnam as well as senator john mccain, senator lindsey abraham who continued to serve as a colonel in the air force reserve, and my colleague senator mark kick who is a commander in the navy reserve. the elections this month saw at least nine new veterans of iraq and afghanistan electioned to congress bringing the total of new ernst haves in the next congress to at least 16, some are still counting the ballots in some states. the people of illinois are produced that three of those 16 veterans are from our state. congressman adam kin singer, an air force veteran of iraq and afghanistan, and two exceptional leaders who will join the next congress, bill enier, a new congressman from downillinois, former adjutant general. and my friend, my shero tammy duckworth, daughter of a vietnam vet and one of the first women to ever fly a combat mission in iraq. she was combat ago blackhawk helicopter when r.p.g.'s hit her helicopter. she's worked in both state and federal government on behalf of veterans. what a proud day it will be for america when tammy stands t
